From Jim’s Heart—All Ear

Have you ever tried to define obedience? That’s the challenge a missionary ran up against as he was translating the Bible into a foreign language. Taking a break from his search for a meaning, he called to his dog. When the dog came running, a tribal observer said, “Your dog was all ear.” Instantly the missionary had the words he needed to define obedience—”to be all ear.”

How about you? Are you “all ear” when it comes to hearing what God says in His Word?

Ask the Lord to help you respond with eagerness to Scripture. You’ll find this easier to do when you follow the example set by King David: “Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against you” (Psalm 119:11).

Father, as I hide Your Word in my heart, help me to listen to its prompting and hear its life-giving message. And then, give me strength to obey—to be all ear. Amen.
